Would you like to create a bird and butterfly sanctuary in your yard?
At your local school, library, church or business?
Do you enjoy attracting wildlife to your home?
Do you maintain the four elements of habitat: Food, Water, Shelter, & Sufficient Space
Would you like to have a beautiful garden blooming with native flowers from early spring throughout the summer and late into the autumn?
If you said yes to any of these questions, then your property can become a Certified Bird and Butterfly Sanctuary. Your sanctuary can be as small as a few native flowers arranged in a few pots on your patio or as large as a few hundred acres. You can also certify a portion of a local school yard, neighborhood park, library gardens, church yard, a farm field or grass strip, or an entire corporate campus.
